It just, it costs like 12 bucks a bottle for just like this but it reallyhelps and it lasts like forever. I know that Mary Kay sells stuffbut this you know

Keratosis Pilaris of the Face DermTV Epi 451
Keratosis pilaris, â€œKPâ€� and â€œchickenskinâ€�â€¦ They’re all the same thing. And more peopleare asking, can you get it on your face? The answer isanother case of good newsbad news, but today I have more good news than bad news.So stay tuned! Hello, I’m Neal Schultz pause And welcome to DermTV.
Let’s start with the bad news and end ona happier note. The answer to can you get keratosis pilarison your face is yes. And sorry, but there’s a little more badnewsâ€¦ when it doesn’t go away, it often morphsinto acne. But the most important part of this storyis the good news: facial keratosis pilaris usually doesn’tlast very long, is much less common than keratosis pilarisof your arms and legs, and is fairly easy to treat,
either as keratosis pilaris or if it in factevolves into comedonal acne. In the DermTV episode on keratosis pilaris, I mentioned that the individual bumps or lesionsof keratosis pilaris are whitish colored, narrow pointed raisedbumps, and often with pink flat skin in between. It usually develops in teen years or early20’s, and occurs on the outer and back parts ofyour arms and the front of your thighs. When it occurs on the face, it’s usuallyalready on the arms and thighs
unless you have eczema in which case you canget it just on your face. In either case, it starts very subtlety buteventually reaches the point of recognition as the characteristicbumps of keratosis pilaris. Treatment of facial keratosis pilaris is similarto that of keratosis pilaris of the bodyâ€¦ by using exfoliantsâ€¦ but because the slightly pink flat skin inbetween the bumps is more sensitive on the face than the armsor legs, the first exfoliating product to use, dependingon how pink the skin is,
is either a 6% lactic acid exfoliant, especiallyfor younger people, or people with eczema who tend to have moresensitive skin, or an 8% glycolic product for older peopleor less pink and or less sensitive skin. That’s instead of the 10% glycolic productwe usually start with for keratosis pilaris of the body. Treatment takes a few weeks to a month ortwo, depending on your case. And if it morphs intocomedonal acne, usually the pink disappears and the treatmentis the same as
regular comedonal acne with skin type appropriatecleansers, toners and glycolic based exfoliants. Another therapeutic triumph! Now that’smore good news!.
